Business cards that say what you really think!

How many times have I wanted to tell someone off for their piss-poor parking? About a zillion times. But it always seemed kind of childish to sit in my car, for potentially hours, waiting to give someone a piece of my mind. Not to mention, there are a lot of crazies out there. How do I know that this person isn’t a poor parker due in large part to their being a card-carrying, knife-wielding psychopath?

Exactly! Play it safe Natalie. Walk away.

And I do.

But not without wishing, praying, and wanting so badly to say my piece!

And what about the dude that near knocked me over last week at the card store. His body odor was more than just foul…it was an assault! But…what do you say?!?! I mean…he was walking around apparently oblivious to the scent…as if he was fine with it when it was clear no one else was.

Don’t even get me started on one of my gal pals who is being such a dumbass right now dating a total douche bag and then complaining about it incessantly (I hope she isn’t reading my blog…)? I mean, I can only be outraged on her behalf the first 85 times. At some point, she stays and it’s on her. But how do you look a pal in the face and say “seriously…you are being an idiot!” without coming off as a total jerk?

Shikes…maybe I am just a jerk?!?! Anyway….

Or how about that snotty sales clerk? I thought she was getting paid to answer questions but by her twisted eye and head reaction, it seems it was insensitive of me to interrupt her text-fest.

Or the dismissive waitress who likely spit in my soup when I asked that it be reheated. Heaven forbid I want my tomato soup steamy?! Ya’d have thought I asked her to rebuild the pyramids!

I know I am not alone. I know y’all out there wanna let er’ fly sometimes!

I mean not without just cause. But for those special, ever singular, blood-pressure raising, steam-coming-out-of-ears moments!

Well…I found the perfect solution for us to keep it classy while still putting it all out there. Anonymously at that (if we so wish)!

Say hello to my new BFF, offensive business cards.

They say it all when I can’t! I can leave one discreetly on the parking pissant’s window…slip it on the sly into the pocket of the BO man.

Or hey, I could be bold and just pass them out…straight up…to the gal pal, the snotty sales clerk and the dismissive waitress. “Here’s a card…special…for you!” Triple Z SNAP! BAM!

With 100 cards and 8 different types perfect for common, everyday situation insult, I’ll be set. I mean…with cards like:

  • You Suck At Parking
  • You Smell Like Shit
  • Your Tattoos Are Retarded
  • Your Service Sucks
  • You’re Ugly As Fuck
  • Santa Isn’t Real
  • You’re An Idiot

I’ll be letting er’ fly all over the place!

I’ll be known as the offensive, card-carrying, urban redneck version of Bill Engvall. You know, the stand-up comedian who hates stupid people and has the hilarious skits “here’s your sign.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There I’ll be…”Here’s your card…

The fun I could have with these….be the best $15 I’d spend in ages!

Tell me about a time you could have used one of these offensive business cards? Come on…no one will think less of you here! Or…if you could customize them, what would be your most used offensive business card and why? Come on…share the wealth…

It’s Twisted Tuesday and that means it’s time to enjoy a smile, giggle or laugh…here’s hoping I’ve provided it in spades…enjoy!

And like Louise Behiel in her beautiful In Memorium post, I just want to say that on September 11 every year, I remember. God bless all my American friends and family…thinking of all of you today!

Kegel panties?! Because tighter is better…

Jenny Hansen did a timely undies chronicles post yesterday that had me oohing and aahing over the latest innovations in double-duty bras and texting adult underpants. Definitely worth the read folks! Timely because I had me an undie chronicle of my own all lined up for y’all to swoon over today. Jenny’s gonna lose her shit over this one! Squeeeeee!

It all started on the weekend. Hubby and I had the pleasure of hanging with friends who are expecting a baby in the near future. Having never been pregnant and given my totally curious nature, we dove right into a lengthy question and answer session. One of my friend’s concerns was regarding the vajayjay; will it go back to its former glory after childbirth or will it be forever stretched into an echoing canyon?

Heart breaking for her anxiety, I went out in search of answers or some kind of product that could help. Girl (you know who you are), this post is for YOU!

Allow me to introduce you to….the PantyO; the kegel exercising panty…because tighter is better!

Shut the front door. I know!

This panty may look like any other slightly bejeweled panty but it’s a panty that packs a punch with a kegel exercise extension (about one inch in height) sewn right into the crotch of the panty.

Inside the PantyO (www.pantyo.com)

That’s right…when you put the panty on; you insert the silicon extension into your hooha to give you a “focus” point to perform your kegels.

No more wondering if you are squeezing the right muscles; when you clench your cookie and she grips that cool cucumber like there’s no tomorrow, you’ll know your working your kegels and that a tighter twat is around the corner.

And for my friend with the concerns about her vajayjay after having a baby, kegels help restore the pelvic wall after pregnancy and labor. BAM! Girl, I got your back!!! I mean shoot…what are friends for, right?!?!

And that’s not all. The benefits and importance from performing kegels goes beyond muff magic. They also:

  • Strengthen the pelvic wall for pre-pregnancy and easier labor (shut up?!?! Seriously?!?!).
  • Improves bladder control (always a plus).
  • Helps tighten vaginal passage which can increase sexual pleasure (sold!).

This is one workout that’s easy to do anytime, anyplace. Fire on your PantyOs and head out shopping, working, or watching TV knowing your vajayjay will thank you (and reward you) for it later!

Basic PantyO

The PantyOs comes in two styles. You can get the cheeky PantyO for $85 (as seen above) or the more basic PantyO for $52 and can order either here. Both are made from 100% spandex featuring Swarovski’s Crystals and the pantyO silicon exercise extension.

I wonder if this would make a weird or awkward baby shower gift? Hmmmm…

It’s Twisted Tuesday and that means it’s time to enjoy a smile, giggle or laugh…here’s hoping I’ve provided it in spades…enjoy!

A writing space that will set your muse on fire!

All too often I hear the super sad tale of fellow writers not having their own office space in which to write. A couple of kids and BAM, there goes your writing room. Bestselling authors and potential bestselling authors being relegated to writing at the kitchen table, the island, or worse yet, the couch. Trying to tune out hubby’s fifty zillion questions “what’s that…what are you writing…who’s that for…what channel is that news program on…what good shows did Tiffany and Amber just review…where did my socks go???

Oh I know all about it.

Or how about the kids? “Mom I’m hungry, Mom Billy hit me, Mom I need to pee, Mom I just peed myself…” The list goes on and on.

Without a room or a dedicated writing space to close off the world and get some quiet or crank up your latest book’s playlist, how’s a successful author to concentrate? I mean…you are doing this for your family for land’s sake?!?! Don’t they understand? You are the next BESTSELLER. On the cusp of millions of dollars, movie deals, book signings…if only you had a proper writing space to make it all happen, right?! Well…something like that anyway.

And typing at the kitchen table or on the couch…no no no! If you want a 20-year writing career, you can’t be risking carpel tunnel with insufficient or improper wrist and finger support. I mean…these are your money makers people. You need to treat em’ right.

As always, have I got the solution for you!

Meet the Emperor 1520 and its big sister, the Emperor 200.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

O.M.G (and not Jenny’s new OMG definition either – this is for the ol’ Oh MY GOD one we all know and love – Jenny you are such a perv – I love it) now that’s what I am talking about!!!

For a measly $6200 US (I know this might seem like a lot right off the bat but THINK about your lifelong earning potential as a successful author. I mean…a couple of books and this bad boy is paid for – it’s an INVESTMENT people), you can get yourself the all-encompassing, self-contained Emperor 1520 home office.

Hand built in Canada (and you know we Canadians build good shit), it boasts a comfy, immersive and aesthetically unique environment for the long hours you are going to spend as an aspiring author on your way to uber success in the literary world.

It comes with tilt (and you thought that was just for your car…hah!), an integrated audio system (cause you are going to need to wear headphones if you put this in the living room – gotta tune out your partner and the kiddies when you are working on makin’ the moolah), LED lighting, and strategically positioned monitors (not included) and accessories. Not to mention, it’s ergonomically optimized, a must-have in today’s successful author’s writing room.

Just think about how much your imagination will soar, characters will come alive and plots will thicken when you feel like you are powering a small air craft in your KITCHEN no less??!? I mean, if you are going to write about spaceships and other worlds, why not feel like you are IN one. Talk about an immersive creative experience. This thing breathes inspiration, ingenuity, and originality. It’s gonna lite a spark in your muse’s ass! You’ll be on FIRE!

But wait. Maybe this isn’t enough? Maybe this isn’t technie enough for you? Maybe you feel like I’ve dropped the bar? Maybe you want more…more comfort…more high-end…more gadgetry…your muse DEMANDS it! Your muse is a diva and the diva demands LUXURY. I know all about it people – got me one at home.

Well hold onto your panties and strap on your jock strap…meet the Emperor 200. Don’t let the small number fool you, for a mere $49,150 US (I’ll admit, you’ll have to write and sell quite a few books to have this one pay for itself) you too can have yourself the ultimate computer workstation. Or as I like to call it, Author Only Area (you’ve heard of Area 51, the most famous secret military installation in the world…well like that but for Authors!)

It has features like a TOUCH SCREEN CONTROL CENTER (it’ll be like flying the Starship Enterprise people), air filtering system (gotta put your health first), light therapy (really get your muse working overtime), electric powered leather seats (beam me up Scottie) and up to three 27” LED screens and a blow-the-lid-off-your-ears Bose sound system. The website says “be bold and unique” – no shit!

I think they should change it to “make your muse your bitch”.

With the Emperor 200, no more waiting around to see if Miss Muse shows up for work today or if she’s in any kind of a mood to give you the good stuff. Nuh-uh, no way, I don’t think so HO! Miss M will be to work, on time, dressed to kill, and ready to deliver you the bomb of all writing. This shit’s gonna make you weep it’ll be so good.

What’s your writing space look like? What spaces fire up your muse? Come on…share the wealth…

Maximizing summer with magnetic convenience

With summer coming up on us like a freight train (and for those of you who enjoy summer nearly all year-long – damn you), hubby and I have started pulling out the usual fun-in-the-sun gear.

We’ve got our beach chairs (I admit, I have a slight addiction), we’ve got our umbrella, and we’ve got a new collapsible cart from Costco to help us tug all our gear to and from the beach. Ok….not “we”…more like hubby will tug it along but I digress.

As you can see, we are pretty well set up!

Except for this TRAGEDY right here! Note the red circles!

Yes…that’s right! While maxin’ and relaxin’ catching some rays, Hubby and I have to physically HANG ONTO our beer? A major intrusion on my mucho relaxo attitude! It requires care and consideration which hampers my potential nap possibilities. I mean, what if I fell asleep or got so relaxed I simply….let go?!?! We are talking possible epic beer blunders people. There’d even likely be…spillage….

GASP! Say it isn’t so Natalie?!?!?!

It’s so people. It’s so!

For those skeptics who are reading all confused saying “why doesn’t she just set the damn thing on the sand?!?!?” Silly people….silly, non-beach people! Although to the less experienced bodacious beach baby, that would sound like an adequate solution allow me to impart some of my hard-earned fun-in-the-sun lessons with you. Setting said koozie on the beach leads to 3 things:

  1. SAND on my beer koozie. I understand, in and of itself this is not a huge issue except for the fact that now, each time I bring that cold cocktail to my lips, I’ll inadvertently get sand dribble all over myself. This is both uncomfortable and leads to uneven tans. No thank you!!
  2. Speaking of cold, setting said koozie on the HOT sand means that my brown bottled brewski will be tasting like hot chocolate in no time. Ewwww…
  3. And finally, by having your beverage sitting in the sand, there is an increased likelihood of knocking the darn thing over. When I pour myself out of that insanely low-to-the-ground beach chair, I stagger around like a drunken sailor that’s been on a bender for a week.

I am sure you all understand now the dilemma I am faced with. That all beach people are faced with. A travesty!

Well no longer! I’ve saved our respective beach butts with….the portable magnetic beverage stake!

I want to BE That lady in the picture! How uberliciously fabulous does that look (although it would be improved if it was available in bedazzled pink…just sayin’!) Ya just drive the little stake into the ground near the chair and use the magnetic insulated koozie and voila, all done.

The magnetic based keeps the koozie secure to the stake so all is kept “cool, raised and in reach” (my kind of motto). You don’t have to worry about knocking it over unless you want to punt it like a football (another viable FUN use – gotta luv multipurpose products!!!!)

You can order this genius gadget for $10.99 (+ shipping) from the website.

How do you keep your beverage cool and clean in the summer? Are you a beach bum or a sand hater? What’s your favorite ways to cool off and beat the summer heat?

It’s Twisted Tuesday and that means it’s time to enjoy a smile, giggle or laugh…here’s hoping I’ve provided it in spades…enjoy!

Road trip life saver

So you know how sometimes you go on long road trips? Say for a shopping trip or maybe to see a NASCAR race or perhaps a cross-country camping trip? Hubby and I have done quite a number of these types of road trips in our 8 years together. Just to name a few, there were 2 trips to Bar Habor, a 7-8 hour drive, and a trip to New Hampshire to see the NASCAR Loudon race, another 7 hour drive. We love road trips. There’s nothing quite like the thrill of the road in front of you and the adventure sure to follow. The sights to see. The fun to experience.

Well…all except for the potential bathroom nightmares.

There’s nothing worse than heading out on a long road trip and being between gas station exits when nature calls in a hurry. I had one such incident when a bagel did not seem to agree with me. Luckily we were able to get to a dingy old gas/pizza parlor in time. As I rushed in, I noted that the bathroom was right next to the pizza counter (ugh…heart dropping but no choice…) and hadn’t seen a “real” cleaning in quite some time. Unfortunately for me, beggars can’t be choosers and I was out of options and time.

And even more unfortunate…for the gas/pizza attendant…the flush decided at this most inopportune time to….break. I pity to the guy who had to come unclog that flush. If he’s reading, I am so sorry! Let me tell you, I came flying out of that little store at MOC 22 screaming START THE CAR!!! Kind of like this…

 

Embarrassing and humiliating but what else can a gal do when nature calls? Or as in my case, nature SCREAMS!

Or what about those times when you can’t wait for the next exit because you gotta go NOW. I know firsthand the joy of having other drivers watch as I made a mad dash, legs semi crossed careening half crazed into the woods, roll of toilet paper or a few napkins in hand. Not cool!

Well…I worry no more. Thanks to the Bumper Dumper! A trailer hitch mounted portable toilet (y’all know how I love trailer hit mounted stuff).

That’s right, now I can take my flush with me where ever I go. All I have to do is pull into a secluded spot, plug the bumper dumper into my trailer hitch, and let er’ fly. And for those more “open” areas, I can just fire up the privacy screen and let my feet dangle while enjoying the comforts of home on the road.

Best yet, I have the choice between a sealable bucket or bag. Gotta luv options!

For only $69.99 (plus shipping) you to can have this level of creature comfort for your road trips. Just visit the website to order yours. 

Oh…and don’t forget to order the optional toilet paper holder for added convenience and comfort; it’s only $9.99.

What are some of your funniest or most embarrassing road trip stories? Come on…share the wealth!

Urban Word Wednesday: Phone-yawn

Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary. You are gonna love these!

Phone-yawn: The act of taking out a cell phone from one’s pocket or purse, resulting in other people in the vicinity taking out and checking their phones as well.

Examples Of Use:

Hubby and I went out to lunch before heading off to Punta Cana. I thought the waitress was going to die laughing as she stumbled over to get our orders and caught the tail end of this convo.

Hubby: why is it that every time I even glance at my blackberry, you have to haul yours out? I was only going to be 2 seconds and you take forever because you always fall into the blogosphere never to return.

Me: baby…I can’t help it! It’s a phone-yawn!

Hubby: a phone-yawn? What in God’s name is that?

Me: well you know how a yawn in contagious. You see someone yawning and BAM, you start yawning? It’s the same thing but applies to cell phones, blackberries etc. I see you pull out yours, regardless of how long, I suddenly gotta check mine! If you’d rather I didn’t check mine, don’t check yours.

Hubby: I am unsubscribing you from the urban dictionary. I can’t take it anymore.

Me: oh stop…You know you love it and you know it’s true!

Hubby: damn…why are you always right?

Me: I’m a woman….just sayin’!

Have you experienced a phone-yawn? Now that you think about it, doesn’t it totally happen all the time? Share your phone-yawn stories…


P.S. Remember, hubby and I are on vacation until April 23, 2012 but have fun and talk amongst yourselves!

Women peeing standing up?!?! Amen to that!

All right. Y’all know I’m a pretty active lady. I like the outdoors. I like adventures. Camping, ATVing, hiking, fishing; I’m into it. I dig it. I am at one with Mother Nature. So much so, I’m quite comfortable at using nature’s garden as my personal latrine. And I think I’ve mastered the art of outdoor urination!

Natalie’s 10 steps to the perfect outdoor pee:

  1. Location, location, location! You need a spot where you can stand horizontally level but has a slight vertical downward slop. This is paramount to ensure a pant-protection pee stream occurs. Standing on a large tree root, at the top of a slope, or on a large rock works fine. Try to avoid ant hills. Although they do display perfect outdoor urination grade, certain species of ants can bite and it’s better safe than sorry on this one. Trust me. Lesson learned the hard way.
  2. Drop your drawers! That’s right; this is no time for modesty. Strip those pants and undergarments down to your ankles. Trying to hide your naked butt from the bears is only going to ensure a piss-poor urination incident (pun intended).
  3. Go deep! It’s all about the squat and tilt my friends. First, you gotta go wide in your stance and deep in your squat. Get right down there. The closer to the ground you can get, the less likely for unwanted backsplash.
  4. Sit back. Yip, you read that right, now it’s time to tilt your pelvis slightly forward. It’ll feel like you are almost sitting back into your squat. The idea is to aim the firing squad down the slop. Trust me, in this squat pose; it won’t be a little tinkle coming out. If you point straight down this will only ensure nasty backsplash not to mention a urine puddle protruding into the shoe zone. Protect the shoe zone at all cost!
  5. Grip and grin! Just before you “let go,” grip the outside of your pants and pull outward to keep your pants out of the line of fire. This will also help stabilize you in your exposed stance.
  6. Relax and let go! Enjoy the freedom of watering nature’s garden.
  7. Let nature run its full course. Your thighs are shaking, your balance is precarious, and you’re looking around to see if someone’s going to “come up on ya”. I understand your urge to cut the stream short and stand back up. Don’t let anxiety or poor physical conditioning get the best of you or you’ll wind up with urine stains marking your misfortune. Hold your perfect pee pose. If it helps, think of the toning you are getting.
  8. Drip dry. Once your perfect pee is complete you must hold the stance for another few seconds to drip dry slightly. Personally, I like to add a slight bounce at this point. It helps shake off excess and also helps get the circulation back into my feet and legs.
  9. Rise up half way and wipe.
  10. Discard tissue (biodegradable of course) into the trees and reassemble.

Voila – my secrets to the perfect outdoor pee pose.

But even with this expertise there are times when all the squat skills in the world won’t save you from urination incidents. Squatting deep and steady after a few drinks can prove to be very challenging. Any slight wobble and the next thing you know you’ve got a damp pant leg to deal with. Or what about those outdoor concerts with their nasty port-a-potty’s where you have to hover. I mean, I can hold a deep, tilted back squat “pas de problem” but a half-poised hover after 3 beers, give me a break!

I mean, even my good friend Amber West encountered an uncomfortable urination situation on a trip to Mexico. She was touring the countryside when she found herself in high need to relieve and the only option; a sketchy outhouse with no door, just a bowl (no lid, no seat), a cock-eyed rooster, and the hover. Eeekeee!!!

We’ve all been there!

GoGirl

GoGirl

Well, Myndi Shafer turned me on to a perfect solution to all our urination woes: the GoGirl, a female urination device (hubby calls it an FU device – female urination device – definitely another blog post) that enables women to pee while standing up.

I shit you not!

You just hold GoGirl against your body, forming a seal, aim, and let er’ fly! This would greatly simplify my outdoor urination adventures but it’d also come in very handy at concerts, traveling, etc.

GoGirl is made with flexible, medical grade silicone. So you can dispose of it after use if you want…or clean and reuse. Their patented splash guard eliminates messing and spilling and GoGirl fits easily in your purse, pocket, or glove compartment for those “ya just never know” moments!

Check out some videos:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Check out the GoGirl’s YouTube channel for more videos.

You can order your very own GoGirls here. They come in pink (love that) and camo and come in a variety of order packs; $12.99/single, $34.97/3-pack, $134.99/13-pack etc.

You Go Girl!!!

What do you think, are you an outdoor urination expert? Would you give peeing outside a try? Will my 10 steps help? Think you’d give GoGirl a try?

FAB posts on blogging, tweeting, writing, living and laughing…

It’s Thursday and that means it’s time to share the blog luv.

Blog/Tweet Out Loud:

Write Out Loud:

  • Since I am planning to embark on writing women’s fiction, I got a ton out of Roni Loren’s guest post by Sierra Godfrey on creating the all important dark moment. The post was super helpful on making sense of structure elements I’ve been reading about.
  • Jami Gold offered a fantastic gem on what makes a story feel realistic that’s a definite must read.
  • You HAVE to go read Shéa MacLeod’s guest post, the Phoenix and the Darkness, by Lizzy Ford. Lizzy is another of the amazing Indie Chicks: 25 Women 25 Personal Stories and her post is powerful and left me a smidge speechless. I was enthralled with Lizzy’s story and her writing. You will be too.
  • Jennifer Eaton had a very serious scare for any writer. Go read her post and then go back up your stuff!
  • Kristen Lamb puts together another winner with her post on the importance of the antagonists. I hadn’t ever thought about it that way but it MAKES sense! I am just starting out and I am going to follow this little ditty to the letter. Besides, I think it’s one character profile I’ll have a blast doing.
  • Jody Hedlund did a great guest post on Writers in the Storm about 4 steps she uses for organizing plot ideas into a novel. I loved the post. It was practical advice that I think will totally work for me. Add a little of Kristen Lamb’s advice and any writer would be well on their way – I know I hoped to be!
  • I thoroughly enjoyed Kathy Owen’s post this week on how writing is like putting up your Christmas tree. I loved the parallel she made and how she tied it all together! Great analogy!

Life Out Loud:

  • I just ADORED Piper Bayard’s post on spreading the moxie. Essentially, you need to know what you want in life and then not be afraid to ask for it and go after it! Sometimes, it just works out! Her post inspired me to go after what I want – no excuses!
  • I loved Nancy J. Nicholson’s post on recognizing that sometimes the shortest distance between two points isn’t always a straight line. Sometimes taking a break, walking away, and letting the frustration slip away will only help your creativity blossom.
  • Did you SEE Marcia Richards NEW blog DESIGN!?!? Like O.M.G.! It’s totally up my alley and I love it! She also did a wonderful post on the history and meaning behind advent calendars. I had no idea. I love how she made her own that created ahhhmazing and meaningful family memories!
  • Friendships are sooo important. And if you are traveling around the world, making new galpals can be a great way to experience the real culture of the area. Patricia Sands made friendships that will last a lifetime half way around the world and got a real taste of France.

Laugh Out Loud:

  • TELL me…ASSURE me that you all read Jenny Hansen’s post on how her secret coffee concoction led to her friend Clair being…well…propositioned!!!! By a married man no less. He drank the coffee and lost his mind! RIOT! And the hubby and Jenny had a portmanteau-off in the comment section with Jenny pulling out the win (in my humble opinion…lol).
  • Have you seen what The Bloggess has been up to lately? She scored an enormous, wearable taxidermied wolf and then…she wore it to the opening of Twilight with a friend who dressed up like the Volturi – OMG the photos are hysterical! Seriously funny!

I hope you enjoyed this week’s line-up of fantabulous blog posts. Stay tuned for next week’s. I promise to go and spend oodles of time (time away from friends and family I’ll have you know…) to bring you this do-or-die information…My god…you guys must really love me!!

Got any ditties of your own to share? Let me know and maybe they’ll be featured as part of next week’s line-up…
